Although it may seem that Spring is far away, now is the time to start developing your irrigation plan, especially if you are planning a new landscape or a garden. When working with clients who are redesigning their outdoors, we create a design based on the new changes to ensure that the irrigation system serves its purpose efficiently.
With the health threat posed by GMO foods, an increasing number of people are either buying food from farms or they are building their own home garden. Such an addition requires thorough planning to ensure that each plant gets the right amount of water. Although some “green thumbs” water the plants themselves, many prefer the convenience of a well-planned irrigation system.
There are various systems, including drip irrigation systems which can be beneficial to your garden. The right choice for you depends on various factors, including the plants you are looking to include in your garden, your budget and more. In certain cases, we can also help give you suggestions on how or where to place the garden for the purpose of cost efficiency.
If you are planning on redesigning your landscape, you may require a redesign of your sprinkler system as well. Depending on the extent of the changes to your landscape, your irrigation system may need to be redesigned and relocated to a better position. This will help continue water efficiency and keep your water bill low.
Additionally, if you are looking to change plants around your landscape, you should consider xeriscaping. Xeriscaping is incorporating plants that do not require excessive watering or maintenance, which will help your new landscape be water efficient.
